Grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 to Georgia nonprofit organizations and government agencies for breast cancer treatment, support, education, and screening services. Funding is intended to reduce breast cancer mortality, address disparities, increase access to care, and help medically underserved individuals with patient navigation. Projects may take place in Bulloch, Bryan, Chatham, Camden, Glynn, Effingham, Liberty, Long, or McIntosh Counties.
The funding priority areas are listed below in order of importance based on the needs identified in the 2015 Community Profile:
1. Projects that reduce barriers related to no cost or low-cost breast cancer screening and diagnostic services, financial assistance with diagnostic copays/deductibles and transportation assistance for medically-underserved individuals. Projects must include a comprehensive communications plan to educate Coastal Georgia residents about the availability of local resources.
The medically underserved are people with life circumstances that make them susceptible to falling through the cracks in our health care system. Many do not have health insurance or cannot afford it; those who do have insurance sometimes face insufficient coverage. The medically underserved also include those who have trouble accessing health care for any reason. They are people who have illnesses or disabilities that have extended their need for care beyond their coverage, or people who live in remote areas where health services are scarce. As the health care system has become more complex and more difficult to navigate, even people with insurance and many resources can be underserved.
2. Evidence based patient navigation projects that increase the number of medically underserved and/or Black/African American residents served through navigation services, with priority given to projects that seamlessly transition residents through the breast cancer continuum of care. Patient navigation is a process by which a trained individual guides patients through and around barriers in the complex breast cancer care system.
The primary focus of a patient navigator is on the individual patient, with responsibilities centered on coordinating and improving access to timely diagnostic and treatment services tailored to individual needs. Patient navigators offer interventions that may vary from patient to patient along the continuum of care and include a combination of informational, emotional, and practical support (i.e., counseling, care coordination, health system navigation, and access to transportation, language services and financial resources).
All requested costs must be directly attributable to the project, provide an estimated cost calculation and include a brief justification explaining why the costs are necessary to achieve project objectives.
